If a class has more than one part or section, you must enter all sections of the course otherwise you will get a missing co-requisite error message.

Changing registration or Drop/Add
Once you submit your registration, tuition and fee charges are automatically posted to your account. You should always check your schedule to make sure you are registered for the desired course and section. You can make changes or Drop/Add during the web registration or in-person registration periods. Add/Drop fee will not be assessed for changes made via the web. A $15 Drop/Add fee will be charged for in-person drop/add transactions.
Some courses may be cancelled due to low enrollment. When this happens the canceled course is automatically dropped from your schedule. It is your responsibility to add an alternate course or section before the end of the registration period. If you register on the web, we suggest you check your schedule before classes start so that you can be aware of any changes to your schedule.
Class Schedule & Term Bill
If you register on the web, you should view or print your class schedule and bill after each transaction. If you register in person, you should pick up your class schedule and term bill before leaving the registration area.
Make a payment to the Bursar’s office by the payment due date. If your term bill is not paid your registration may be cancelled and you will have to re-register in accordance with the registration calendar.

Financial Aid funds will be applied to your tuition bill only if you have received an Award Letter from the Essex County College Financial Aid Office before the payment due date. If the amount of your award does not cover your total bill, you must pay the balance in full or sign up for the Deferred Payment Plan. If you did not receive an Award Letter from the Essex County College Financial Aid Office before the payment due date, you must sign up for the Deferred Payment Plan or pay the balance in full.
